Modeling Non-Uniform UE Distributions in Downlink Cellular Networks

A recent way to model and analyze downlink cellular networks is by using random spatial models. Assuming User Equipment (UE) distribution to be uniform, the analysis is performed at a typical UE located at the origin. While this method of sampling UEs provides statistics averaged over the UE locations, it is not possible to sample cell interior and cell edge UEs separately. This complicates the problem of analyzing deployment scenarios involving non-uniform distribution of UEs, especially when the locations of the UEs and the Base Stations (BSs) are dependent.
